CAPE MAY — Cape May County Republican Chairman David Von Savage issued the following statement on Tuesday, March 30 in response to Freeholder Gerald Thornton’s announcement that he and Sue Sheppard of Ocean City will seek their party’s nomination for freeholders in the June 8 primary election:
“We are confident that this campaign will give the Cape May County Regular Republican Organization the opportunity to demonstrate to the Republican voters in Cape May County that Freeholder Ralph Bakley and local businessman John McCann are the best candidates to keep Cape May County moving in the right direction.
“Our local business people know that they have to make financial adjustments as they face a downsized market. With today’s economic challenges, it is all the more important that we can count on our government leaders to do the same.
“Just as Gov. Chris Christie is reshaping state government by cutting spending and reducing the size of state government, Ralph Bakley and John McCann are prepared to make the necessary policy changes in government to keep Cape May County’s property tax rate the lowest in the State while protecting the valued community services that are essential to our citizens.”
